Abstract

Parts made by Layered Manufacturing (LM) have a limited surface accuracy and their build time is often long due to the deposition of sacrificial support structure. However, LM machines with an ability to deposit along multiple directions can improve upon the surface quality and reduce the support volume. In this paper we consider multi-directional slicing, present algorithms and implemented examples.
